Post Script: Swamp Bones – Kathy Reichs

Masterfully crafted!

Swamp Bones: A Temperance Brennan Short Story

Kathy Reichs

Random House UK, Cornerstone

ISBN: 9781473518131




A new, exclusive straight-to-digital Temperance Brennan short story from Kathy Reichs, world leading forensic anthropologist and No.1 bestselling author of Deja Dead, Bones Are Forever and Bones of the Lost.


Forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan has just arrived in Florida’s Everglades for a much-needed break when she is unwittingly thrown into the middle of a deadly case with its roots in the darkest depths of the swamp.


Swamp Bones also gives readers the first chance to read the opening chapters of Kathy’s highly anticipated new Temperance Brennan novel, Bones Never Lie, out in September.


My View:

Capturing the essence of a story, bringing characters to life and adding mystery and tension to a realistically described setting is difficult enough when you have a full sized novel to build and share you narrative but to be able to condense the word/page count and still achieve the sense of storytelling prevalent in this novella is an outstanding achievement and speaks of the masterful way Kathy Reichs is able to deliver her story in any format. Excellent!

  1. Carol – Oh, that’s interesting that this is novella/short story size! Reichs can certainly keep the tension going and weave a good background story. Not surprised at all you liked this.

  2. I have to read series from the start and this is one I’ve missed and now I’m way behind! I really want to read them though, but I’m not sure there are enough hours in a day to catch up and keep up with everything else I’m reading.
